Yemen army thwarts Houthi attacks in Taiz, kills 40

Yemen army thwarts Houthi attacks in Taiz, kills 40

A TV channel linked to Houthi rebels in Yemen said the missile was launched at the airport.

It is believed to have been fired from Yemen, where a military alliance led by Saudi Arabia has launched thousands of air strikes against the armed Houthi movement, which now controls much of the country.

The missile was destroyed near Riyadh's King Khaled worldwide airport and was said to be of "limited size".

The Riyadh airport tweeted that it hadn't been affected.

"Travelers across King Khalid global airport in Riyadh, we assure you that the movement is going on as normal and usual, and trips going according to time", the airport tweeted. It said the attack was conducted using a Yemeni-made, long-range missile called the Burqan 2H.

A long-range ballistic missile was sacked at King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh, the Houthi TV channel Al-Masirah reported.

Saudi Arabia Ramps Up Deadly Bombings in Yemen
According to the United Nations , more than 10,000 people have been killed in the conflict. According to a Houthi-run news agency, Sabaa, all the victims were civilians.

A Saudi military spokesman condemned the attack in a statement, saying the missile was sacked "indiscriminately" towards a populated civilian area.

The Saudi military may have successfully used a missile defence system to shoot down the incoming threat.

Earlier this week, a suspected airstrike by the Saudi-led coalition killed at least 29 people, including children, in northern Yemen.

The explosion occurred in one of the terminals of the worldwide airport king Khalid, 35 km from Riyadh.

Saudi forces have reported shooting down Houthi missiles before. Saudi cities will be a continuous target.
